bill came up as unfinished busi A formal reading of the bill was dispensed Vance then proceeded to address the lie said the resnlt of the bill might be to reduce the revenue to a certain extent but not to reduce the What the people desired was a common sense reduction of the revenue and corresponding relief from the pay ment of The Mclvinley bill was at outrage on human patience and au insult to the intelligence of It neither re duced the revenue in the sense of reduc nor equalized the duties on the On the it in creased the taxation and made the duties more unequal by imposing heavier burd ens on the poor and on the and by so setting a tax on the neccssrics of life as to shock the moral sense of every just Vance went on to arraign the re publican party for evils which he claimed protection had brought upon tho He quoted from Blaines letter to Fry and said that the unmis takahlc wisdom of what that distingu ished had said illustrated the wis dom of he had left If it were

las today received a letter from Secre ry Blaine in reply to his of recent Blaine in part You ask me what assurance I have as to wil ingness to enter into reciprocal arrange ments of trade with the United Your questions surprises for you ant have forgotten that only six years IRO the prime minister of Spain in his anxiety to secure free admission to our markets for the sugar of Cuba and orto Rica agreed to a very extensive reaty of reciprocity with hen our minister at The year very admirable treaty f reciprocity was negotiated by General irant and as United States ommissioners with the Republic of the treaty was considered in 11 its part aud all its re ults I have proved highly dvantagcous to both In lew of the pending it is a omewhat singular circustanccs that loth of these treaties failed to secure the pproval of congress and failed for the xpress reason that both provided for he free admission of Congress vould not then allow a single pound of ugar to come iu free of duty under any ircumstauccs And now the imposition is to open our ports free to vcrybodys sugar and to do it with such apidity that we are not to have a mo time to see if we can not make a ipltir by which we may my for at least a part of the sugar in the piiincts of the American farms and change of opinion certainly vmarkable in so brief a Indeed he only danger of our not secnr ng advantageous treaties of reciprocity now is the possible belief on the part of those countries that we are anxious for free sugar that by patient waiting they can secure all they desire without money and without Fearing that result I sought an interview with eight repub lican members of the committee on ways and means more than four months 1 endeavored to convince them that it would be expedient and wise to

reciprocal proposition touch ing from the fear that it may con flict iu some way with the policy of pro The danger I wholly in the opposite The value of sugar we annually consume is Shall we pay for it all in cash or shall we seek reciprocal arrangements by which a large part of it may be paid for in pork and beef and in lumber and in salt and in shoes and and thousands of other things I think the later mode is the highest form of protection and the best to promote When shall we enlarge our commercial intercourse with that great South if we dont now make a beginning If we now give away a duty on sugar as we already have given away duties on coffee and hides and rubber aud get nothing in exchange which shall be profitable to the farmer and the fac tory in tho United what shall be our
